Panera Bread employee ‘exposes’ how mac ’n’ cheese is made

A woman who posted a viral video “exposing” how Panera Bread prepares its mac ‘n’ cheese says she’s now been fired from the company. The clip was originally posted on the video-sharing app TikTok and has been viewed more than 10 million times on Twitter. In it, the employee can be seen dropping a plastic packet of frozen mac ‘n’ cheese into hot water, then cutting the bag open and pouring the food into a bowl. The original video, captioned “exposing Panera,” gained both outrage and skepticism from social media users. But regardless of the mixed reactions, the video has now allegedly had some real-world consequences. “Lol i lost my job for this,” the employee posted from her Twitter handle, @BriiRamirezz. Panera Bread has not confirmed whether or not an employee was actually fired over the video, but the company did confirm the clip’s accuracy. A spokesperson for the chain said in a statement to the Washington Post that the mac ‘n’ cheese is “made offsite with our proprietary recipe developed by our chefs”. For her part, the woman behind the video said she wouldn’t be commenting any further on the situation. “Can’t say nothing else, they asked me not to and i gotta respect it,” she tweeted
